A security research project at my university used a form of interrupt processing similar to keylogging to detect when unauthorized requests are sent out. Just because your terrified opinion of these skills doesn't have a use for them doesn't mean it's not important. Dude got a fellowship for his work.
Thank you for making my point for me. Legitimate use of such things tends to be done by legitimate groups and facilities not by anonymous individual whackers on a forum doing Google searches. I seriously doubt your University security research project started by jumping on a forum and asking "Hey, has anyone had success at building a malware?"
I never said "all" I said 99.9%. Your dude that got a fellowship is the .1% of the general population and you know that.
